Ouside hitter Joe Julkowski (Carol Stream, Ill.) led the Lakeland attack with 15 kills, while sophomore Mitch Wiskirchen (Schaumburg, Ill.) and junior Chris Kubacki (Vernon Hills, Ill.) combined for 35 assists.
Sophomore libero Andrew Cheever (Milwaukee, Wis.) led the Muskies with nine digs, while middle hitters Avdo Omerbegovic (Chicago, Ill.) and Beau Bradshaw (Oak Lawn, Ill.) finished with three blocks apiece.
